718 Advanced Surface Engineered Membranes

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
155F (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session focuses on the engineering and modification of membrane surfaces to improve membrane performance. Improvements may include but are not limited to enhanced permselectivity, fouling mitigation, durability in hostile environments, and robustness. Papers are encouraged that explore surface modification via thermal, chemical or radiative treatments, grafting, the use of polymer brushes, chemical or physical vapor deposition, or the introduction of micro- or nanoparticles. We welcome contributions based on biomimetic surface engineering and bio-inspired surface modification.
